    David, this article for the guest column in May 4’s Gazette presented a considered “debate” with something for everyone.

    “Walk bikes through this area” would not be uncommon for a paved path.

    Preserving the Commons tradition established here is essential to its continued availability.

    All can stop and savor the sunset.

    David, it’s a pleasure to read an article that creatively informs in a comprehensive, kindly and elegant gesture.

    Congratulations for your valuable social contributions!

    Well wishes,

    p.s. If you post it, please add that Roberta and Steve are long-term and regular walkers or bicyclers on the region’s bike paths.

    Roberta A. Farrell

    • Many thanks, Roberta. Your words of appreciation mean a lot.
